Despicable Me Review

For that animated comedy for a stocking stuffer this year, Despicable Me comes out onto DVD today, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment! My girls and I recently got to watch this DVD, and they couldn’t keep their eyes off the screen!
The Story
: Surrounded by an army of little yellow minions {adorable little creatures I may add}, and armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays and battle-ready vehicles, Gru {voiced by Steve Carrell} vanquishes all who stand in his way. He is the ultimate villain. So, while he creates ways to get funding for his new master plan of stealing the moon – he encounters three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. Yet he sees them as a key to following through with his plan. This may be a story of evil geniuses and takeover tactics – but it is also a story of love, kindness, and family.

The Despicable Me DVD has the following bonus features:

  • The World Of Despicable Me
  • Despicable Beats
  • Gru’s Rocket Builder
  • and more…

The Blu-ray 3D Combo Packs and Blu-ray 2D Combo Packs of Despicable Me include three new mini-movies starring the adorable Minions. There are more bonus features in these sets, including cookie recipes, apps {to ‘Minionize’ yourself with customized glasses, bowties, hats and hairstyles}, BD-Live features and another β€œmaking of” feature. And there are interactive arcade games to play which are fun for the entire family.

Despicable Me is a family-friendly film, and one that will be enjoyed by adults and kids alike. Great for those quiet Winter evenings, or for sleepovers for the kids. Movies are always a great choice for gifts, especially as stocking stuffers!
